Your accommodation options include beautiful holiday homes, cottages, B&Bs, farm stays, and camping and caravan parks, as well as country lodges, hotels, motels, and decadent luxury resorts such as the award-winning Spicers Peak Lodge.

Worried about keeping your guests entertained? No need: art galleries, bushwalking trails, museums, country pubs, abseiling, magnificent national parks, divine eateries, scenic flights, horse riding, markets, water sports, country towns, ballooning and many other attractions will ensure that they have more than enough to do in between relaxing and soaking up all that fresh country air. Wow your guests with a reception dining experience they’ll never forget. The Scenic Rim is home to an abundance of fresh produce, and when you combine fabulous local food and wine with creative chefs the result is nothing short of extraordinary.

Whether you want to marry on a mountain side or in a quaint country church, or have opted for chic or rustic, The Scenic Rim has the locations, venues and service providers to make your every wedding day wish come true.
